A richly textured story of love and murder, One Foot in Eden unfolds through the distinctive voices of a small-town sheriff, a young married couple, and those who share in their secrets. Will Alexander knows who murdered Holland Winchester, but he can't find the body and no one's talking, least of all Holland's neighbor, Billy Holcombe. And Billy's pretty wife Amy seems to know something about it, too. For years, the mystery will go unsolved - until the day the power company forces everyone out and floods the valley and family farms where this close-knit community has lived and worked for generations. Ron Rash has written, with deep understanding and affection, this tribute to a time, place, and way of life vanishing from the modern South. "One Foot in Eden is a story of family secrets and family bonds, of legacies and intense loyalties...in prose that thrills. I couldn't put it down," says novelist Robert Morgan. Winner of the 2002 Novello Literary Award, One Foot in Eden was chosen for publication from more than 100 manuscript submissions.
